Word reached the city yesterday that an important strike had  been made on- the Queen Bess.  ��������� Duncan Grant, of Silverton, was  a  visitor in town on Wednesday.  J. M. Harris arrived home Tuesday  last from bis trip to Spokane and other  points.  Mrs. Robt. McDonald, of Fernie,came  in on Wednesday evening's   train for a  few days visit to friends.  P. E. Simpson  returned   Wednesday  ., from a week's sojourn in   Nelson where  The strike reported is the widen- [ he wag a witneM jn the winters vs. K.  ing of the ore  chute  from  a few' and S. suit.  inches to a foot of clean ore, and     Mri c# Dicka011) of KasIo> ig now in  was. made on a parallel lead to tlie  big vein. It is a lead that had  not been worked for some ��������� years  until lately, when a lease was  given to Harry L,owe, Walter  Murray and Angus Cameron.  The leasees have taken out 6o  tons since they took hold of the  workings, and are already sacking  a car from the new find for immediate shipment.  Mr. Xaingstocks, of Nelson,  secretary of the Queen Bess Co.,  is now visiting the property in  connection with the strike.  Town Jottings.  R. F. Green. M. P. P., wa3 a visitor  in the city on Tuesday.  Mr.arid MrB.Geo. Robbins have moved  into tlie residence lately occupied by B.  P. Little.  Fred Ritchie returned the first of the  week from a few days visit at the Halcyon Hot Springs.  The ore shipments for the week were  Payne, 20 tons; Keco 42, and Ameaican  Boy 21.   Total 83 tons.  The Filbert hotel is beingkalsomined,  repainted and otherwise improved. P.  H. Murphy, the proprietor, is sparing  neither paint or money to make it attractive, and in a short while the Filbert  will rank among the leading hotels' of  . the district.  The basket social in the basement of  the Methodist church on Tuesday evening was a very enjoyable affair. Those  who attended spent a pleasant evening  aud the promoters realized $24 on the  sale of the baBketn. This sum will be  spent in supplying the reading room  with games and literature, where all  who wish may spend the evenings.  The curlers held a meeting on Monday evening to arrange the winter programme. A good deal of talking was  indulged in, but very little business  transacted. The main object of the  meeting was to consider the advisability  of either building an addition to their  own rink or purchasing the skating  rink.   After some discussion in which  charge of Giegerich's store here in the  absence of "Shady"Bwho has gone on a  holiday trip east.  We are pleased to state that "Bob"  McDonald, formerly of the Balmoral,  who underwent an operation for appendicitis, is now out of danger and on a  fair way to recovery.  Sandon will shortly have two hardware stores. Harry Nash, our tinsmith  and plumber, is going into the business,  and will have a large stock of shelf and  heavy hardware in a few days.  Two sisters who have been'in the city  for some time collecting funds for the  childrens' orphanage in New Westminster left on Tuesday for other, points.  While in Sandon they received good  nancial aid for their worthy cause.  Theseven year old son of J. F. Hall,  barber of Kaslo, wasaccidentlydrowned  a few days ago by falling off the K. and  S. slip which extends out into the lake  in that city. He was only in the water  a short time, but all attempts at resuci-  tation failed to bring back life again.  Deceased was a bright' lad and much  sympathy is felt for his parents in their  bereavement.  The Silver Glance at Bear Lake is  turning out to be a bonanza. Four more  cars of ore were shipped some days ago  to the Everett smelter, which if up to  the standard of the ore sent out heretofore will yield returns in the neighborhood of $15,000. The property ia practi-  cally a "grassroots"producer as the ore  taken out is from a shaft of only 42 feet.  A lower tunnel is now being run in to  get greaterdepth and preparations made  to work the property all winteri  B. P. Little, foreman  at   the Payne  concentrator, has moved his family out  to the mill.     Under  his  management  the concentrating power has   been   increased from 120 tons over 200 with full  water supply.   The gigs have been   remodelled and zinc saved   at very little  cost, which is being sacked and   stored  away until shipping is favorable. Plans  are ready for thebuildingofazincroast-  ing and magnetizing plant, experiments  from which have resulted in obtaining  a70 percent, product and cleaning the  ore entirely of whito iron.   The mill   is  still working two shifts and   furnishing  electric power for the compressor at the  mine.   The rains of the past  few  days  ���������We "are pleased to state that Mrs. F.  L. Christie, who has been seriously ill  the post week, is recovering rapidly.  Knowledge embraces many subjects;  but after all there is only one-subject  that is really worth embracing���������woman!  Arrangements are being made to install a 75-horse power boiler and engine  at the Rambler concentrator to enable  them to run all winter. ���������  W. H. McDougall, of Nelson, agent  for the Scranton Correspondenceschools  ���������was in town this week drumming up  business with good success.  Dr. Power returned to town on Tuesday after an absence of some days in  Nelson in connection with Winter ys.  Kaslo & Sloean Railway case.  J. H. Park, machinist at the Payne  concentrator, left on Monday for Nelson, having received a telegram informing him of the serious illness of his wife.  Three men are engaged in driving a  new tunnel on the Mercury claim owned  by Mayor Cunning and others of this  city. The new workings are to try and  tap the vein at greater depth. A quantity of ore is being taken out, sacked  and piled ready for rawinding, and a  good trail is being built to ship steadily  duiing the winter.  The C. P. R. are making extensive  improvements to their summer resorts  along the main line. A great influx of  tourists is expected next summer and  the railway officials are already preparing for them. Contracts for new hotels  and chalets are being let at different  points in the mountains and  an extension of sixty sleeping rooms  is to be added to the Glacier hotel.  The shipment of Black BasB from the  government hatchery at .Ottawa tostock  the B. C. lakes, has raised such a fuss  that the Dominion government have  decided to send no more. Many anglers  claim that in a few years after the introduction of bass in our lakes, the brook  and mountain trout would disappear  and our now famous trout fishing would  soon be a thing of the past.  Sold for:$75,ooo  G. W: Hughes Disposes of His Interest  in tho Alamo Group for  That Amount.  G. W. Hughes has sold his  quarter interest in the Idaho  Alamo Group of 26 claims to his  co-owners, "The Scottish Colonial Gold Fields, Ltd.," of Edinburgh, Scotland, for- $75,000  cash. Mr. W��������� Jenkins, one of  officials of the company, is now  looking over the property and will  probably take charge.  Mr. Hughes is one of the most  successful operators, and has still  heavy interests in this district,  chief among them is the Sunset,  which although practically a new  property has paid dividends to the  amount of about $55,000.  Mrs, James Barton and family are  visiting at Almo.  A. W. Wright, managerof J the Ajax,  was visitor to the city for a few- days  this week' on business, leaving again  Thursday. He states in all probability  the Ajax and Palmita will not be worked  thia winter,  Presbyterian church services at 11 a.  m. and 7.30 p. m. Rev. F. H. Bartlett,  B. A., of Silverton, will ceonduet both  Sunday services. Sabbath school and  Bible class at 2.30 p. m. All cordially  welcomed at all services.  nothing was decided,  they   agreed   to  gives assurance that it will   run   until   Daily News.  adjourn until Thusrday., real cold weather sets in.  The damage suit in the case of Winter  vs. the Kaslo & Sloean railway company  was concluded yesterday afternoon, and  with it one of the longest sessions of the  assize court in* the  history of  Nelson.  ; The case was given to the jury shortly  after 3 o'clock. > In   his charge   to  the  jury his   lordship  directed   that there  was liability on the part of the defendant company, but upon the question . of  damages, those who heard him gathered  the impression that he did notthinkthe  case one for heavy damages.     The jury  returned about 4.30 o'clock with a verdict of  $1,000   for   Mrs.   Winters,   the  victim of the accident,andof$200for the  husband.   In accepting the verdict  his  lordship expressed the opinion   that  it  was a just one, and that the parties to  the case were under an obligation to the  jurors for  the very  careful    attention  which they   had   given   to  what  had  proved to be a very tedious case.���������Nel-  Mr.F. S. Attwood and Miss Lillian S.  Seale, who were married in Birtle.Man.  on Thursday, are expected to arrive on  this evening's train to visit Mrs. W. W.  Fan owe, aunt of the bride. The young  couple are on their honeymoon, and  after a few days stay here will leave for  Kaslo, their future home.  The adjourned meeting of curlers  on Thursday was again devoid of  any real action taken is regard to making arrangements for a suitable building for the winter other than leaving  the entire matter in the hands of the  management committee. The skating  rink company refuse to submit any  terms on which they will dispose of the  ikating rink.  A well filled house greeted Harry  Lindley's company in the opera house  Wednesday evening to see the production of "David Harum." The play was  well performed and well received, but it  is only right to say that Harry, himself,  is the mainstay of the actors. His  inimitable Irish character, witty  sayings and "boss sence" brought forth  rounds of applause from the audience.  The company play a return engagement  here in a few weeks when they will perform "The'Sky Pilot" and be assured,of  a full house.  WKKBtjuwaBBMimmiaaa THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, October 2$r 190a.  The Mining" Review.  SATURDAY,  OCTOBER 25, 1902.  OUR BOW.  With this issue the Mining Review  appears under new management; Mr.  Chas. Cliffe, founder of the paper, having moved to a more lucrative field in  the thriving town of SauJt Ste Marie,  where   he  intends   to   publish a daily  paper.   The new proprietors have had  a number of years experience in newspaper work, and will do  their best to  get   up   a bright, newsy paper, which  will be increased in size as soon as conditions demand.   At the present time  there is no great necessity for a larger  paper on account of everything being so  quiet, but as soon as the. mining industry revives and business improves, the  Review will be ready to meet the occasion.   Heretofore we have been dependent on the silver and lead market only,  but now everything points to a bright  future for zinc.   This will cause many  properties lying idle for some time to  resume  operations    and   brighten  up  things generally in the camp.   The Review will pay strict attention   to   the  mining news of the district; its aim will  be to secure only that which is reliable,  let the outside world know of our unsurpassed mineral resources, and do all  in its power to encourage capital.   In  politics it will be strictly independent,  treating all  alike; lauding good  legislation and censuring the bad.   Public  men and acts open to criticism will be  treated   fairly  and ii'not abused or denounced.    We are are aware of the difficulties of our position caused by the  stand our predecessor took in the late  trouble,but we are assured by many miners that any grievance   they had with  the former editor of thia paper, applied  to  him   alone,   and  now that he has  severed   his  connection   therewith the  past will soon be forgotten.   The paper  just now is in good financial circumstances, being comparatively free from  debt and having sufficient working capital for some time.   We have moved into  new and   snug  quarters on   the front  street where we will be found attending  to business and all orders for job work  will be promptly attended to.   In conclusion we would ask our readers to be  lienent with us for a few weeks as regards the appearance of our paper, as  between moving and straightening up  things in general we have had but little  time to devote to it this week.   Hoping  for a continuance  of  past   favors  and  that we may merit the esteem and patronage of the Sandon public,  We remain, yours truly,  J. B. CLIFFE,  J. G. POTTER.  MIRROR, SCALES, ETC.  There was a man. And his  mirror said " sallow skin."  And the scales said "losing  weight." And.his friends did  wag their heads as he passed  by. But being a prudent man  he forthwith swallowed daily  certain pleasant doses of Scott's  Emulsion.  Then his mirror said "ruddy  face." And the scales sunk  beneath his weight. And his  friends looked upon him  with  amaze.  (Note ���������This is no fable���������but is true  history),  "We'll send you a little to try, if you like  SCOTT   &   BOWNE,      ChemUti,  Toronto  END OF THE STRIKE.  The termination of the Pennsylvania  coal strike can now be regarded as virtually settled, by both the operator and  miners, through the instrumentality of  President Roosevelt, to submit their  differences to arbitration. With the  settlement the horrors of,the approaching winter will be eliminated. The  settlement is, however, no more than  what was anticipated after the repeated  appeals for arbitration.  If   the   Btrike   had   been   prolonged  "To say a pleasant  word to anyone was  almost impossible."  ������l was troubled with female weakness for  eight years; aud suffered more than I can tell,"  writes Mrs. Gust. Moser of Ovahdo, Deerlodge  Co., Mont. ������ My disposition .was affected to such  an extent that to say,  a pleasant word to  anyone was almost  impossible. ;  ������I had two operations performed by  one of the most skilled  surgeons of the "West,  but did not get relief.  Then, against my  doctor's strict orders,  I commenced taking  Dr. Pierce's Favorite  Prescription and  'Golden Medical Discovery,' nud also followed the advice  given iu the Common  Sense Medical Adviser.  "I continued this  treatment for three  mouths, and to-day  nm as healthy and  well as a woman can  be. I cannot thank  Doctor Pierce enough  for his kind letters  to me."  Womanly diseases, as a rule,  spoil the " disposition," because of  the extreme nervousness and suffering they cause. Happiness as well as health is restored to  the woman whose diseased condition is  cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite  Prescription.  After eight years of suffering and two  fruitless operations, three months! use of  wFavorite Prescription" restored Mrs.  Moser to perfect health. This great  remedy for woman's ills, establishes  regularity, dries weakening drains,' heal9  inflammation and ulceration and curea  female weakness.

Y.  throughout the winter it would be im-.  possible to piedict what untold hardships, misery and bloodshed the country would have been subjected to.  The strike began on May 15th just  lasting five months, throwing 147,000  miners out of employment, with a total  estimate cost of $136,000,000 to those  depending upon the mining of the' coal.  Of this amount the miners suffer to the  extent of $28,000,000.  Generally speaking there will be great  rejoicing throughout the United States  at the cessation of what, in a great many  respects, in the annals of recent industrial warfare, one of the greatest of  struggles. Throughout the contro-  versay there is little to commend in the  methods either party adopted in the desire to obtain their ends. Theie is no  denying the fact Mr.iMitohellhasshown  himself to be a man of capability, and  ranks far superior to any of the labor  leaders prominent in recent industrial  conflicts and if his advice had been at  all times followed a great deal of  lawlessness would have been  averted. Hopes are entertained in various quarters that the efforts oj the  board of.commissioners will be directed  in such a manner so as (o pave a way  for the establishment of better relationship between the employer and employee.  Next Monday is nomination day for  two councillors, but we have not heard  of any candidates for the positions. It  is altogether unlikely that anyone will be  brought forward, as municipal honors  do not present, a very rosy hue in  Sandon. In all probability the existing condition of affairs will be -allowed  to drift along until the end, of the year  when the annual election takes place.  The sooner something is done the better  as debt is being accumulated and no  provision made to meet it. No collectors  roll has been struck or taxes collected  and the municipal business is allowed  to run itself.  It now looks as if the much talked of  preferential trade within the empire is  to become an established fact, Sir Wilfrid Launer's significant statement in  Liverpool, just befere sailing for home,  that "Canada was the future granary  of the empire" may yet bear fruit. Old  England may be slow in realizing what  she really possesses in this fair Dominion, but once aware of it better trade  relatione are sure to follow.  Reports still continue to app&arof  Premier Dunsmuir resigning. As a  "hangeron" Dunsmuir takes the lead of  anything in the province.  FOR OVER FIFTY.YEARS.

Sandon;Rlnk Company;Lack Funds  and Will Probably Not Open  This Winter.' '  The directors of theJ3andon Rink Co.,  Ltd., held a meeting this week when'tho  affairs of.thecompany were"fully discussed. The indebtedness i& about $1,800  for which the directors, in" addition to  the company's property, are personally  liable.   The directors during the   past  year have, in order to save the fine property of the compauy from being sold   to  pay the indebtedness, contributed largely of their private means, but they feel  now that it is time for the citizens gener-,  ally to come the company's relief.   Unless sufficient money is  raised  shortly  to relie've'pressing liabilities the directors have decided not to open the   rink  this season but to let matters take their  course and if need be sell  the property  for the indebtedness.    It  would   be   a  great   calamity   to  the  town   from   a  sportsman point of viow if the rink remains closed and it is to be   hoped   the  citizens and all true lovers  of   skating  kockey will bestir themselves   and   enable the directors to meet all   pressing  demands and open the rink.

McCammon is spending a few  days at Halcyon Springs and upon hi3  return will leave on six weeks vacation  to Toronto.  M. McCarthy will immediately open  up a bakery in the lower part of the  Stein building with W. Kiel, formerly  of the Payne mine, in charge.  One of the west end damsels was lodged behind the bars yesterday for pelting stones at the Union hotel,smashing  windows and making things hot in that  quarter.  ,,. Mr. C. Cliffe has purchased the "Pioneer" of Sault Ste. Marie and has assumed the management of that paper.  It is his intention to publish the first  daily newspaper in that fiourshing city  and has already concluded arrangements to start the enterprise.at an early  date. Mrs. Cliffe, Victor and Walter  will leave for the "Sop" as soon as possible. Miss Cliffe will have charge of the  bookstore and J. B. Cliffe with a partner will continue the Mining Review.  In another column appears an open letter from the Rink Co. which shows their  financial condition to be in a sad plight,  and if funds are not forthcoming they  will be unable to open  the  rink  this  season and probably be forced  to   sell  the building for its  indebtedness. -.:��������� It  appeals a few of thedirectors have given  their personal note to finance and   kept  the concern going for the past two years,  have  decided to  give this   up,   as   it  appealed to them to be the only avenue  open  to  be  released    of    the    bur-1  den.   It really seems to bad  that  circumstances are as they   are,  and  our  hockey teams, for which we are noted, ]  are likely to have no ice to practice on  the coming winter,   The letter explains  itself and we hope our citizens will   stir  themselves in tho matter, so as. to   enable the Rink Co. to pay off part of its  indebtedness and save the building for  winter sport. i  MIRROR, SCALES, ETC.

Israel has proven himself a tarter in politics since his flop  over in '96, and hia high protection  tariff views while a member of a free  trade administration was the cause of  his dismissal.  Lynchings and nigger barbarcues still  hold sway in the sunny south. Two  wretches were tried, convicted and sentenced to death for a revolting crime in  Texes, but the populace could not wait  for the law to carry out the death penalty and took things in their own hands.  They dothis line of business with a rush  and a roar, down in Dixie, and don't be  long about it.  A glance over the political situation  in Canada reveals a state of chaos.  Dunsmuir is expected to resign "the  premiership of this", province at any  moment; Ross is almost sure of defeat  in Ontario in tho event of a bye-election ; there is a political upheaval in  the Dominion cabinet, and everything  points to the overthrow of the Liberal  egime in the province of .Quebec  Hon. Geo. E. Foster, who has been on  a trip through the west, was interviewed  in Winnipeg a few days ago. He speaks  in glowing terms of the mining situation in BrltiBh Columbia, and states  that with|more economical management  and capital, the mineral resources of  the province would prove much more  extensive than at present there is any  conception of. Thia is quite true, but  before there is much change in the mining situation of this province we will  need a complete change of government  and'modification of our mining laws,  which have been the cause of repelling  capital instead of encouraging it.  The above is the result  of  the  vote  take on Saturday last, as to whether the  men employed at the Coal Creek mines  continue to   work   81-2  hours  underground aa they have been for  the  past  ���������tyvo months, or go back to the old system  in force before the Btrike; of eight hours  .underground, according to  the  agreement between the miners and Mr. Tonkin two months ago.   As will be noticed  by the figures the result is   not  satisfactory   to   either   side.     The  miners  1 claim they are now entitled to  the   old.  system," but the management maintains  that thqsehot voting show by their indifference .that they are perfectly' satisfied,with the present., A committee of,  the employees met Mr. Tonkin on Wednesday evening with a view   to  finally  settling the matter and will report to the  union.   The general manager went into j  the question thoroughly.    He  showed  the committee, says the Free Press, that  the  miners  at  Fernie  were    making  better wages than in.any-other camp in  the country.-   -During the. month  of  September there were fifty-eeven miners  employed in No. 1 mine and the amount  earned by them reached $6,760.60, averaging $120.71 per month for each man.  The total number of shifts for the month  was 1,295, making an average of $5.18  a shift for each man.   The highest wage  earned by any miner during the,- month  was $172.50 and the, lowest   the  handsome sum of $101.90.   The highest wage  per day earned by any miner was $7.06,  while the lowest was   $4.08.    How  the  matter will end it is  difficult  to   say.  Some of the  miners  are  not  satisfied  with'the way the vote on  the question  was taken, but it is the opinion of most  of those who are willing to express themselves on the   subject   that  the  union  will let the matter drop and the present  system will continue..  A number-of the  men are afraid the car system   now  in  force will be weakened aa soon  as  the  mines are in full operation,  and  that  the present wage scale will be cut down.  Mr. Tonkin assures the Free Press   he  has no intention of doing anything    of  the kind.     He has already  purchased  400 carB to added be to thepresent6tock,  and in regard to the wage scale he  is!  prepared to enter into a two year agree- j  ment with the men on the matter.  .Qi delightfully , appetizing danti-  ���������ness are not. difficult of ^procure-  ment or preparation,   only two  things' are ' necessary  to  ensure  success.., ..'.-.  . .-.One���������Acknowledge of the large  and wonderfully varied assortment,  of Canned,  Preserved, Smoked,  Dried and- Pickled darities to be  found in our stock of groceries,  and the other���������a small amount- of  money with to purchase an ample supply. fW7-- ''  " But'whether you manage a home,  hotel,'.or mine we can fill  your order with high quality groceries at the right prices.  .

Todd,   Ford   and   McDonald,  were in Princeton this week with a story  of a marvellous strike of goid ore about  twenty-three miles from here,   up  the  Tulameen river, between Eagle and Bear  creeks.  They brought with them   samples of  ore, and an assay made by J.   O'Sulli-  van, tbo well known Vancouver nssayor,  which they claim had been made from a  specimen similar to the ore  exhibited.  The assay was for twenty-seven bund-     "" l"auJ assays will no  red dollars a ton, almopt entirely gold, Jubt be mad������' when ifc should bepossi-  the only other metal of value in the ore ble to form Borne adequate idea of the  being a few ounces of silver. importance pf the new   strike.���������Prince-  The parly spent a couple of days in   ton Star'  town recording the   claims   they  had  staked, twenty-seven in all, located  in  three groups on similar   looking dykes  to the ore from which the big assay was      A '���������     ,, .

The big assay was made .from ore  taken near the contact of the hornblende  wilh a belt of quartzite which parallels  it.-  The gold appears to be in tellurides,  as no free gold is visible in the specimens shown.  The hornblende carries considerable  iron. Whether the gold will be found  distributed throughout the hornblendic  dykes, which are in some places over  100 feet wide, or whether it follows the  contact with the quartzites is a matter  yet to be determined, but the chances  are in favor of it being confined to the  contacts.  . "  To say that the strike has caused considerable excitement would be putting  it mildly.  A prospector who has just returned,  states that standing room is at a premium in the Otter Flat hotel, and that  the trail is kept hot with the string of  incoming fortune seekers, while stakes  are being cut in all directions.  Princeton is almost deserted, every  prospector able to get away having joined in the rush.  At Gianite creek, the men working  for the Boston and British Columbia  Hydraulic company stampeded to the  new find, and the company has been  forced to closedown and postpone further development until the excitement  subsides.  Prospectors are said to be'pouring in  from Aspen Grove camp to the north,  all anxious to make locations in the new  camp.  j    An amusing incident is told of a prospector who owns claims adjacent  that  were located some years ago and crown-  granted.   When the rash of newcomers  commenced he got excited and  hastily  re-located   his  crown-granted claims,  evidently fearing that if he did not  do  so, some of the eager gold seekers wouln  "jump" them,  A number of the prospectors who left  rhere are expected back early next week,  ' and on their return many assays will no  Cheap Furniture.
